Cultural Competence Workshop Guidelines



Cultural Competency Curriculum Guidelines Implementation Workshops

The majority of ASCO’s schools and colleges participated in these on-site, tailored workshops — the program has been in operation from 2012-2016. A Walmart grant provided funds to schools and colleges of optometry to cover the costs of holding a Cultural Competency Curriculum Guidelines Implementation Workshop. Workshop facilitators demonstrated how to use the ASCO Guidelines for Culturally Competent Eye and Vision Care to incorporate topics and experiences in cultural competency into the optometric curriculum. Grant funds paid for travel, housing and per diem for two facilitators as well as materials used during the workshop.
